Fundamentals of Micromachining Homework 2 BIOEN 6421, EL EN 5221 & 6221, ME EN 5960 & 6960 3/21/02 Practice Problems #2 1. You are using KOH etching to define a 200 μ m thru-hole in a 〈 100 〉 wafer. What should the dimensions on your mask be if you are using a: a) 400 μ m thick wafer b) 600 μ m wafer. What would be the dimensions of the thru-hole be if you used the mask intended for the 400 μ m thick wafer on the 600 μ m thick wafer? 2. You are using KOH to etch ports in a 400 μ m thick wafer. What minimum thickness of SiO 2 is needed to provide a mask for KOH etching. You are using 20% KOH at 60 ° C? If Si 3 N 4 etches at 1.5 Å/min using the same conditions, how thick would it need to be to serve as a mask? (Hint: Use Appendix C in your textbook) 3. If the shape drawn below was used as a mask for KOH etching, draw a top and side view of what the hole would look like if allowed to go until only 〈 111 〉 planes are exposed. Assume the 〈 100 〉 planes are parallel to this page. 4.
